looks good. the show is very fresh (just a few hours). the deriver will make mp3's if the files pass all file checks. these will show up in a few hours / 1 day.

if it was encoded with FLAC 1.2.X it will fail. currently archive.org can only support 24-bit flac's of 1.1.X ...

post here if you have problems.

hey Tyler, thanks for the quick heads-up on the Flac version issue. Etree's docs don't mention this stuff, as far as what I read there. I posted a "which Flac.exe version" question on a Forum I found for tech-support for CD-Tag. (I like the heck outta CD-Tag!)

Then I figured, "why not try and run Flac.exe from my CLI?" So I did, and I ran Flac.exe with the "?" switch. It worked! The text string displayed says it's Flac 1.1.2

I'm hoping these Flac-24s will all derive down to MP3s, ZIPs, and the streamable formats. The Arabesque band, and their live music recordings are extremely rare and precious. I felt it was my DUTY to get these amazing tapes put out there. Thanks again for making all this possible.

ps: wow, Tyler... I just looked at the new Arabesque show's webpage -- my Flac-24s are deriving and are listing there! thanks.
